CEREC - Same day crowns

What is CEREC?

At Thorpe Dental Group we now offer CEREC Technology (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic) at our Woodthorpe and Copmanthorpe sites.

CEREC Technology is a dental restoration that allows dental practitioners to produce ceramic dental restorations using 3D photography. It allows the dental practitioner to produce a new crown, veneer, onlay or inlay within an hour – a procedure that would normally take up to two weeks!

How does it work?

Instead of the traditional method of taking a dental putty material to create the impression, CEREC technology uses a highly sensitive camera to create a 3D model of a tooth. Once the clinician has designed the crown it is then sent off to the milling machine which fabricates the tooth from a ceramic block, this process can take between 6 to 30 minutes.

Reasons to choose CEREC?

  • Only one appointment needed
  • No temporary restoration
  • No impression material needed
  • Long lasting and durable
  • Protects and preserve your own tooth’s structural integrity

Why choose us for CEREC technology?

Have you been informed you would benefit from a Crown, Veneer, Inlay or Onlay but don’t want to attend 2 appointments and also walk around with a temporary for 2 weeks? We are able to offer this to patients who are not currently registered with us, you would need a consultation for us to assess your current treatment needs.

If you would like more information about CEREC Technology treatment, please contact either Woodthorpe or Copmanthorpe.
